  1. it is just concentration disorders . the problem is finding a way to code the code ! the start is too hard . this is something I am missing , I am studying horribly like some1 who is forced to do something he hates . it is like a war between my dream and my self . @Amphibian220 thank you so much for reading and analysing my posts , you are helping me . you are the only 1 who is really reading my posts and the 1 who make me back to this forum . but I have not understood what u mean by saying this , can u make it easier to understand ? "Another thing is spotting bullshit “contrived” work and treating it like that. Do you know what certain applicants do with bullshit psychological and logical tests to get into consulting business? I am telling you from first hand experience - they game them. They don’t cheat, they pick up that the recruiter just added more unnecessary hurdles, so they jump over them."
  2. why do i play games if they will not solve any of my problems ? because i failed in real life and I wanna kill my time otherwise I will be depressed . being success in real life needs around 30 years of hard working , and me as a gamer I hate working . I hate everything except gaming , I do not like that , but I do that every day , I am doing something I do not like every day just to ignore something else I hate to do . so I do not like gaming and I hate hard working . so I am not doing something I love in my life , I am wasting it . so I have to change something , not only 1 thing , I have to change my whole routine , my whole life . otherwise I will hate my self , I will loose the will to live . I hate dying too , I do not like games and I hate hard working . so I have to change something . I cant change the reality of dying because I will die at some point . I do not like games , even when I try to like them , I realize that my whole life is going to the hell , so I can no longer like or love games . I hate hard working , but I can change that , yah this is my solution , hard working to reach my goal of happiness while being happy doing that . this is my next step . I like my self , I like studying , and I will reach my goal of being the man that I always wanted to be . I do not fear any thing , no 1 is better than me , they only doing more important things instead of just gaming .
  3. @Amphibian220 I always wanted to be a programmer , and i think that I am clever enough to make pc programs that can help . but the reality is something very hard to achieve because of my gaming addict .
  4. @Amphibian220 Hallo and welcome to my journal , I am studying something related to IT and programming , so my study should be mostly on my pc , and that sucks because I cant hold my self to not play a game or wasting my time . Thanks for your comment .
  5. the main problem there is that games are like allowed drugs that every house contain them ! even small potions can carry hard impact on your life , not to mention that the digital addict is related to porn , social media addict too . so the problem is not only because they are games , it is because they are digital addicting games that lead to other unlimited addicts . I am a human like you , I have tried millions of time to control my gaming hours but I was not able , even when I was able to control that for 1 hour a day during exams it was extremely exhausting rather than relaxing . I hate games , Games are the reasons of my current shitty situation . I am isolated , depressed , thin , failing at university . so Please do not try to control your gaming hours , try to fully abstain instead , And most important is filling your time with better activities and better motivations like self rewarding in order to prevent future frustrations .
  6. sorry for long delay , I backed here to refresh a little bit . habbits changing like gaming is so hard . I am not impoving day by day , this is why I am relapsing again and again , I do not feel good now to back to my journal , but I have to that . Gratitude journal Today I am grateful for being here One amazing thing that happened/I did today 8 hours without gaming Workout/run walked for like 4 kilo meter Meditation 10min Visualisation and daily affirmation Life gets easier when it gets harder . Education very random things , 0 my wake-up time very bad sleeping schedular Weekly Goal(s) sleeping for less than 8 hours . Monthly Goal being able to study more frequently What went well today: did my meditation What I could have done to make my day better: study a bit more, should have done some more sports What I will do differently tomorrow/What I have planned for tomorrow: tomorrow I have to wake up early , eat alot , carry a water bottle and going to library . Weekly summary, thoughts and improvements for the future tI have learned that games does not solve any of my problems , It is just a way to kill time instead of fighting my fear of studying . Study is actually like a monster for me , but I will make it as easy as breathing or drinking water or just gaming for 10 hours straight . I AM A NEW PERSON
  7. @James Good all these websites are connected with two things which are internet + smart device . these two things have many benefits of we use them in moderation , but if we can not moderate them well then removing them completely will be the right solution for us . there are always replacements to your smart devices , believe me . anyway I would recommend doing 3 days smart devices free .
  8. ditching your pc is a good thing but focusing on your priorities is much more important , as a kid i used to be the best children in the class despite my gaming addict because studying was my priority . I recommend removing the Power cable of your pc and sending them to your none gamer friend . after your recovery u can tell him to send them back but be careful ! it would be very frustrating the first couple days especially if u do not have any good replacements that makes you happy like doing sport , reading books etc .
  9. I am one of the people who feel great when they praise themselves or someone else praises them.I admit that my desire to play increases the more i hear of compliments, congratulations or reassurance from someone else. I just want to know if one of you has the same thing i'm suffering from , and I wanna know how to get rid of it ?
  10. can u explain this please ? hmm for me breakfast is a problem , for you what do u eat for breakfast ?
  11. nice to meet you dude , we are very excited to hear your full story , I am sure that u will reach your 90 days detox before next may .
  12. @BooksandTrees WOW gr8 job ! I will be very happy if you tell me all your achievements since joining this forum , because i do not have time to read your whole journal now but I might do that later .
  13. I am glad that you do "TO DO LIST" , and wish that u make it bigger and bigger by the time . Love you brother
  14. @Julon usually it will not work if u have so many recommendations that you love to watch , for me i have unsubscribed all channels but game quitters , nofab , Galileo and the channels that i learn programming from it . that is all ! use this method and try to set a very specific time to finish your work as fast as possible , for example if it takes 4 hours then set your timer for 3.5 hours only and try to beat that , then if you fail u can add 30 minutes and the job will be done . this is what i call youtube in moderation ! if this method does not work u might click that nuclear button and start cold turkey , which means that u have to take holiday from your job for 1 week at least where u close anything related to digital screen like laptop , TV and smart phone . try to find replacements that make you happy like sport or hanging out with friends , spending time with parents etc ( there are 60 hobbies ideas on this site) . i will give you a trick that will force you to improve , start a journal here in this website like this : Gratitude journal Today I am grateful for having this .... One amazing thing that happened/I did today I have started a very good job that i deserve .. i have controlled my self and not watched youtube Workout/run 2 hours Meditation 25 minutes Visualisation and daily affirmation I am sure that i will sleep for 7 hours only a day after 1 week my wake-up time 06:45 Weekly Goal(s) sleeping for less than 8 hours . Monthly Goal being able to study more frequently and have more patience for study longer What went well today: I woke up at the right moment and started my day very active What I could have done to make my day better: study a bit more, should have done more sports instead of watching that 2 games of football for 4 hours What I will do differently tomorrow/What I have planned for tomorrow: tomorrow i will sleep 10 minutes later ( or wake up 10 minutes earlier) Weekly summary, thoughts and improvements for the future i Have learned today that step by step is the best way to improve . such a journal will show you @Julon your progress day by day , and that is like the experience bar that u see in Games ! when u see your progress everyday u will feel more satisfied with your self and it will be harder for you to relapse . anyway Julon i wish you a very successful year .
  15. Hi @Julon welcome to this community , try to watch all the videos of @Cam Adair on YouTube , just 1 video a day and put all the information u hear in that video in action , do not over consume contents on youtube or any other things that require a digital screen because it fits the same need of playing games which mean that you have to quit that too . also i recommend finding replacements for gaming like studying , doing an Ausbildung , finding a Job but do not forget to reward yourself everytime u achieve something ,make daily and a monthly Goals , so when u reach your goal u can eat something you like or just hanging out with friends , going to the gym , but avoid drugs or any harmful things . there are tons of tons of guides here that will help you but try to not wasting your whole day reading guides or something like that , instead try to do things outside your digital screen .
  16. @Chitemple hi man how its going ? Everyone in this community loves you! Everyone here will try to help you achieve your goals and even more. I was once just like you! So I got to know this page, where I discovered that my main problem is that my mind only wants computer games. When I changed this thing and replaced it with charitable activities, I became more happy and optimistic than before. I know things have never been easy, but they are very possible and millions have done it before you and changed their lives for the better. What I want from you now is to make a serious and different attempt to change your reality! Let me explain to you : At this time we should know whether there is a possibility to take a scholarship and continue studying, or we must do a search for the appropriate work that you aspire to. (I will assume that you only want to work and do not want to study) In this case we must move forward to reach the best profession you happily practice. Therefore, you must get rid of game addiction through the following steps: 1- Get rid of everything related to games, such as twitch or Facebook pages or YouTube channels 2- Delete all games one game after another (but start with the one that is less important to you). 3- Add to that changing the location of the table or the computer you are sitting on 4- Also arrange the room and spread a good smell. But you will suffer from a lot of nostalgia for games and so will give you the best way to get rid of craving for games. firstly Create a text document and write in it all the psychological problems that games caused you! Write how much you hate and hate games! Also write about how happy you get when you overcome your cravings of game . secondly Every time you get ideas for playing, go to the kitchen and bring a glass of water, then change your sitting position. and lastly Drink the water, then open the text document above. Read it completely and fully imagine it too! This way you will convince your subconscious that there is absolutely no room to play. Note: It is advisable to write the above mentioned text document on your mobile phone as well. And with that you have won so much time every day ! At that time (which will happen tomorrow ), we need to do is start looking for temporary work that gives us enough money to live and at the same time does not spend all of our time. Because we still want improvement and development for ourselves until we have the permanent work that we aspire to. Therefore, we must improve ourselves socially, culturally and physically! (And since I looked at you, I will be brief.) Regarding the social aspect, all you have to do is ask about the joint activities in your city by asking knowledge and also searching online. As for the cultural aspect, I prefer to go to the city library and read the book "The Power of Introverts" by Susan Cain. Or, you can read any book that you think is useful for you right now. And on the physical side, you have to do a daily jogging for an hour. If you achieve that for 2 weeks, register at the nearest gym. I apologize for the prolongation and wanna inform you that I have devoted my full personal experience to this post which took more than 45 minutes to write , man I do not know you , have never met you but I have spend around an hour for you ! so never think of anxiety , depression or bad ideas . we all love you , we are with you . u do not live alone here . this is not drama ! this is the reality . so lets move on to the next level .
  17. yes , for me i used to eat nothing during the day but some chocolate or ice cream etc , i heared that I have to eat 5 meals a day ! something like 2000-3000 calorie especially if i want to build muscles at the gym .
  18. @James Good hey man how are you ? I wish you a speedy recovery. however, it is a good idea to learn to cook in order to get more healthy and delicious food, especially since this is something that girls love very much and are attracted to it as it attracts friends and makes you able to invite more of them , you will see that they will love and appreciate you more when invite them to A delicious meal made by your hands.
  19. the best way to remove urges is stop watching/thinking of games .
  20. Gratitude journal Today I am grateful for being here One amazing thing that happened/I did today mabye quitting games Workout/run 0 Meditation 10min Visualisation and daily affirmation meh Reading (6hour(s) of studying for the next exam today) just watched some random educating You-tube videos my wake-up time 06:40 Weekly Goal(s) sleeping for less than 8 hours .

  21. I used to be wonderful person who spent his life studying and studying in order to get to know computer games that look like League of Legends. The problem with these games is that they cant be finished and have to consume your whole life to master them , unlike some of the other offline games that you can finish at a specific time and then leave it, so it will be less likely to be addicted to it. Now I am a more open person to quit games and want to get rid of her nightmare forever. at the end, I hope you will help me until I achieve the 90 Days Detox
  22. hello @blackgiraffe22 nice to meet you , I suffered from the same things playing and wasting time so I decided to quit games so that I could live more freely.
